Then Meghan turned around and saw the most beautiful pitch black pony.
She was the perfect size for a child Meghan's age. She was a large pony
about 14 hands high. Luckily she had on a halter! Meghan pulled some
carrots and an apple out of her pocket. The pony walked up to her and
started to munch on the carrots and apple. Meghan slowly made her
move and clipped the lead rope to the pony's halter. The pony didn't mind
that it was being led at all, even though all of Meghan's things were
making a lot of noise. The pony really liked being with a person, even if
Meghan was having a few problems leading the pony and carrying all her
stuff at the same time. They walked along the snow and ice covered road
to Rose Hurst Stables. In about five minutes they arrived at Rose Hurst.
Meghan led the friendly black pony into the main barn and put her on a
pair of crossties in the aisle. Meghan went into the main barn and put all
her stuff away. Then she went upstairs to Karen's office. Karen was the
owner of Rose Hurst and a friend of Meghan. She knocked on Karen's
"YES" Karen said.
"It's me Meghan!" she said. "I have something to show you."
"Come on in Meghan," said Karen.
"It's downstairs though," Meghan replied.
"O.K. I'll be down in a minute," Karen said.
Meghan went downstairs to see the beautiful pony. Then Karen came
down the stairs.
"Oh! She is beautiful! Is this an early Christmas present Meghan?" Karen
"No I found her. She was running down the road," Meghan explained.
